Statement on Russian invasion of Ukraine
February 24, 2022
Britain and her allies must be unequivocal in our unrelenting support for Ukraine and our strong condemnation of Russia’s evil and unprovoked aggression. The West will proudly stand shoulder to shoulder with Ukraine and will not let Putin’s wicked tyranny succeed.
Putin may think he can act with impunity, but we must respond robustly by bolstering existing sanctions to cripple his support network while providing necessary aid to Ukraine. The message must be clear that we will completely isolate Russia alongside any country that facilitates their illegal occupation of a sovereign nation.
Putin, Russia and their allies will be made to pay for their crimes against innocent Ukrainian men and women.
